"Connection Error" Error Message for Whirlpool Appliances
If you have received a "Connection Error" error message, while trying to connect your Whirlpool appliance, it means your appliance failed to connect to the Whirlpool cloud.
Is the home router connected to the internet? Using your mobile device, confirm by searching for something via a web page. Ensure your mobile device is only connected to your home router (cellular turned off). If the page you are searching for doesn't display, try resetting your router. If you continue to have issues contact your internet provider.
Reboot the system. Sometimes cycling power to the appliance will refresh the system and allow for connection. To cycle power; unplug the appliance or disconnect power at the circuit breaker for 5 minutes. Reconnect power to the appliance and try connecting again.

Give it time. The Whirlpool cloud could be delayed in setting up your new appliance. Wait 10-15 minutes and try adding the appliance again. If you continue to have issues the Whirlpool cloud may be temporarily down for maintenance. Wait 2 - 4 hours and try adding the appliance again.

Is your security set too high? If the firewall setting on your home router is too restrictive, the appliance may not be able to communicate through the router to the internet. Call Whirlpool to get details on what needs to be changed. CLICK HERE for system requirement information
